|Title||The De Dunstanville Memorial on the Summit of Carn Brea This 90 foot high granite monument was built in 1836 in honour of Francis Lord De Dunstanville and Basset. It is West Cornwall's most distinctive and recognisable monument and can be seen from many miles around.

For his part in it Francis was awarded the title 'Lord De Dunstaville'.|
